...and the agents come out of the meeting hand in hand with flowers in their hair...'make love not war' and all that.

Funny comparing Meehan's words:

Today:

Quote:
"I really thought it was beneficial so all of us could get a better understanding of the process at hand and have an opportunity at conveying thoughts and issues. All in all, I would say it was a very productive meeting.''
Last friday:

Quote:
"I think the PA feels, and I've only heard this secondhand, they'd prefer to have no involvement by the agents nor are they seeking involvement. So, really if that's the way they feel I have to respect that. Which might beg one to say, "Well, what are you having a meeting for?" You'll have to ask Goodenow about that."

"I think the more substantial people would feel that if they have any submissions for consideration they would probably feel there's a better environment to discuss those issues with Bob, because anything that's mentioned in that hearing will be outside the door in 10 minutes. So I think the substantial people realize that if they're asked they'll gladly give their help. So if we're not asked, and we're not being asked, then I think an individual would have to make a decision whether they feel they want to talk to Bob privately about some concepts, some ideas, some considerations. And then, of course, there's the other group of people who may only want to hear themselves talk and have no clue about the process. And unfortunately those people will take most of the time."
